JetBlue bringing Boyz II Men to JFK T5


If you’re a fan of the singing group Boyz II Men, or of the concerts JetBlue occasionally offers in Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy airport, then plan to be flying to or through T5 on September 24 at 5 p.m. when the GRAMMY award-winning group will be performing for free.

The concert stage is located post-security, so only those with tickets will be able to attend the concert, but there’s one more way to get access:

The band is performing at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas after New York, and winners of a JetBlue contest for fans in New York and Boston will get travel accommodations to see Boyz II Men at T5 and then get to meet the trio and fly with them to Las Vegas to see them perform there.

Here’s the link to enter the contest if you’re in New York.

Tunes for travelers: Irish Festival at JFK

JetBlue is putting on an Irish heritage festival in the post-security Marketplace area at JFK Terminal 5 this week.

On Wednesday (March 16) and Thursday (March 17), JetBlue and its party-partners Aer Lingus and Tourism Ireland promise Irish step-dancing performances, traditional Irish music, complimentary shamrocks and Irish chocolates and “some of Ireland’s great mythological and folklore characters including Fionn Mac Cumhaill, Grainnuaile, Molly Malone, Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, and W.B. Yeats.

Not sure about the folkfore characters part – but the complimentary chocolates sure sound like fun.

On Thursday Irish Artist Julie Feeney “a dramatic and stylish chamber-pop singer, composer, orchestrator and producer and the winner of the Choice Music Prize for ‘Irish Album of the Year,’” will stop by T5 for a concert.
